I posted a few submission this wear, for wich I received approval messages my mail. But still no points in the 2012 section of my profile. Hope admins can see it following this link, but I'm not sure (works only from my account when logged in) : http://www.mobygames.com/user/sheet/view/contribution_rating/year,2012/
Not really important to me after all, but I just wanted to point out this for data accuracy. :-)

Points are awarded for the year you started the contribution. I don't know if the key point is when it is first set to pending or when it appears the first time as work in progress, though, but I think the latter. So when you started a contribution on December 31 and it was approved today, you get the points for 2011.
The dates are based on when you start a submission, not when submitted or approved.
Right. I still keep getting points for items pending since 2011, but they go into the 2011 list.
The counter to get on the Leaderboard Top50 in 2012, is the same as in 2011.
30 pts. are required, before someone appears on it.
So it can last for a shorter or longer while, depending on the amount of own contributions and more than that, before enough of them are approved.
